Therapeutic Use Exemptions
TUEs (Therapeutic Use Exemptions) are written approval to use certain prohibited substances or methods for therapeutic uses. It is granted on a case-by-case basis, and will only be granted provided the following conditions are met:
The athlete would experience a significant impairment to health if the prohibited substance or method were withheld for treating an acute or chronic medical condition.
The therapeutic Use of the Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method would produce no additional enhancement of performance other than that which might be anticipated by a return to a state of normal health following the treatment of a legitimate medical condition.
There is no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the Use of the otherwise Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method.
The necessity for the Use of the otherwise Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method cannot be a consequence, wholly or in part, of prior non-therapeutic use of any substance from the Prohibited List.
